Vico Software, Inc. provides software and services to the building construction industry. Building owners, general contractors, and construction managers use our software and our services to reduce risk, manage costs, and optimize schedules on complex building projects. Vico's 5D Virtual ConstructionTM solutions pioneered the category of BIM for Construction, and they remain the industry's most integrated approach to coordination, quantity takeoff, cost estimation, project scheduling, and production control. The benefits of our solutions and services have been proven on hundreds of building projects to date.


Vico was established in 2007 and is headquartered in Boulder, Colorado, USA, with additional offices in the United States, United Kingdom, Finland, and Hungary, from which we serve customers in Europe, the Middle East, and the Americas. Vico partners with construction technology and services firms to support customers in the Asian and Australasian regions. Our backing came from Borealis Ventures, Highway 12 Ventures and Village Ventures.


On October 31, 2012 we were acquired by Trimble Navigation, Ltd. and are now well-positioned in the Trimble Buildings division for General Contractors and Construction Managers.

If you are heading up the BIM Department in your firm, please share with your team the 5D BIM Checklist, a listing of what functionality is available today from BIM technology, and likewise, what you can be offering Owners as BIM capabilities.  We also have the BIM Master Class Series which includes over fourteen hours of coursework to get everyone up to speed on BIM.


We also offer a step-by-step guide to our 5D virtual construction workflow with video tutorials.  These videos are just 2-5 minutes in length, but illustrate how to use a particular piece of functionality.  You can access the videos here:

Level 1 Cost Planner Training

Level 2 Cost Planner Training

Level 3 Cost Planner Training

Level 4 Cost Planner Training

It is important to point out that the videos show the workflow and the integration between roles in a construction firm.  So even if you are not an estimator, it is interesting to learn how your data feeds the estimating workflow and how they arrived at the information they are feeding you.
